And more again.....

 Australian kit club Mad about Scrappin (http://www.networkedblogs.com/blog/mad_about_scrappin)
had a challenge going for October to use a song title on your layout - upon googling I discovered that come away with me, as well as being a stunning Graphic 45 collection, was also a song..... And the collection came with the perfect colour scheme and title for these lovely Thailand shots... Theres a couple of days left to enter by submitting your layout to their facebook page!

This layout is for the current challenge over at Scrap Africa - http://scrapafrica.blogspot.com.br/2014/10/list-it-challenge-no37.html

as well as the lasting memories week 3 challenge - http://kcclayoutchallenges.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/lm-213-lists-lists-and-more-lists.html

The challenge is to use a list (with at least ten items). As a friend and I were having a look at her new project life cards we found this one, which had spots for "The top 10 places to visit" This was a great excuse to combine the journalling card with all kinds of bits and pieces from my offcuts pile, and some random travel shots that never mad the final cut for the layout of that place/day etc. It was also a good excuse to think back to the times when I was able to travel and how fabulous the places listed were! By the way my top 11 (so far) were:

Ayutthaya, Thailand
Budapest, Hungary (The labyrinths under the castle were fascinating)
Lake Bled, Slovenia (and Predjama castle)
California, USA (Disneyland!!!)
Rotorua, New Zealand (Natural hot spas and the fascinating volcanic history and scenery)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Id love to live on a houseboat)
Saas Fee, Switzerland (stunning car free village between 4 alps and summer skiing)
Stockholm, Sweden (Cant go past those gorgeous Swedes, and their equally gorgeous city)
Lightning Ridge, Australia (The essence of the outback, and loads of opals to scavenge)
Cairns, Australia (The barrier reef is amazing, and so is the weather)
Munich, Germany (Oktoberfest, and close enough to the stunning Neuchwanstein castle)

Cant wait to see the rest of the world one day... perhaps when the kids are grown up and not so damn expensive!
